Meet one of the newest members of the Houston Police Department. This is Spirit. Spirit is a five month old female bloodhound and is currently in training. Once trained, Spirit will be able to track down people, dead or alive using her strong sense of smell and instinct. I had the pleasure of meeting Spirit during a recruiting event at the Houston Aeros game last Thursday night. Spirit was one popular puppy that night. I thought the poor dog was going to have her skin "petted" right off. I could be wrong, but it sure looked like she was happy the whole time.
